Step 3: Clicking on ‘Add a Web Part’ button will display all the available web parts of the site, in a popup window. Go to ‘List and Libraries’ section in this window and select the ‘Teams’ list (if you already have created one) or you can select any list you want.
Step 4: This will add the ‘Teams’ list as a Web part. Clicking on Edit link > Modify shared web part item in the header of the web part title, will display the properties edit window where you can set the properties of the web part.
Step 5: Click on Exit Edit Mode link displayed under Site Settings and see the teams list displayed in the page, as shown below.
